Welcome aboard Liam, I have been writing about this second set for months in this forum, every time a thread comes up about Other One, St Stephen or NFA. I was beginning to think that maybe I was biased aboout this show because I was there, so it's nice to see someone else offer a similar take to mine.

The whole Terrapin through the end is awesome. The Other One is an intense 16 minute jam that just keeps going on and on and takes some interesting detours along the way, it is one of the last long drawn out version there is. St Stephen is one of my favorite versions, it is raw, powerful and unrelenting and is the only version I can think of that skips the intro and powers right into the riff. The NFA is a favorite as well, Phil is especially on here, and plays this descending machine gun riff throughout that is just great. The Round & Round is one of those old versions that starts slow and then picks up in the jam and rocks the whole crowd. This is one of my favorite second sets.

i might, but dude, there has to be some reciprocation in order some time - i can't just take and take - somehow someway - i know what your collection is like so i am screwed in that area most likely (hopefully not, but don't look good) - we'll email i know.

i know you are doing this out of kindness and inner generosity - don't get me wrong........ and i am sooooo appreciative man!!!!!

Wow! Thanks guys. Purple, I must have been sleeping on the job, because I generally follow your recommendations, but completely missed this show.

Liam's description is tantalizing, to say the least. I think we all have our heads buried in the Holiday Season, but once that passes I'll be seeking a copy of this show...

Thanks again...Happy Holidaze.
